This cat happened to be lying in front of a mirror. And this Reddit user happened to capture its reflection perfectly timed, before it moved out of the way. It makes it look like the cat has six legs, two tails, and no head. If we didn’t know this was an optical illusion, we’d probably wonder what sort of pet they have.
This curl is in the shape of the number five. It would be even better if this Reddit user’s little sister was five years old! This photo was perfectly timed, and capture before the little girl’s curl turned back into a normal shape. Maybe they’ll be on the lookout for the number eight, next!

“A guest dropped a pacifier in the Cypress Swamp exhibit at the Virginia Living Museum today. Someone was quick to take advantage!” – via fmlmel
Unfortunately, the guest at this exhibit dropped a pacifier into the fish tank, which can be harmful to the fish. At least this Reddit user was able to capture an interesting picture out of it. This fish wasted no time and decided to make that pacifier his own. It seems that the fish is enjoying the pacifier at least.
“My friend easily carrying his end of this fallen tree.” – via JaronChurchwell
This perfectly timed picture is an optical illusion and makes it look like this Reddit user’s friend is actually carrying a giant tree. This is a trick most of us have probably done in the past. It’s fun to angle the photo to make it look like we’re doing the impossible, like dragging fallen trees. If we didn’t know this was a trick of the eye, we’d assume this Reddit user’s friend had incredible strength.
When faces appear in the strangest places, it’s definitely something we want to capture on our camera. This photo happened to be perfectly timed in the way it captured shadow faces from crumpled paper. These faces look like they should be on some crime detective TV show. Maybe these faces are on a secret mission, and maybe this Reddit user even ended up naming them in the end.
This is something that makes us look twice. If you’d seen this in real life, you might’ve been too stunned to capture it on photo. This Reddit user managed to perfectly time this photo, so he captured a man with two bodies. If they had waited any longer, one of the men might’ve moved and they wouldn’t have captured this photo of gold.
It’s always fun capturing faces on inanimate objects, just like the Reddit user did with the crumpled shadow faces. These workout machines don’t look happy to be there, much like most of the people who were probably using it at the gym. This perfectly timed picture personified the workout machine quite flawlessly. The machines look like they’re screaming in agony.
Have you ever dressed to match your pencil? Probably not! This Reddit user happened to be wearing the exact same outfit as their pencil. This is a photo that is perfectly timed, considering the amount of times this happens is probably slim to none. It’s a fun photo to have, nonetheless!

“Just popped in at the perfect moment!” – via shelldog
The angle of this perfectly timed photo makes it look like this man is peeing. At first glance, we all probably assumed this man’s stream was nearly a foot long, and wondered what he had been drinking all day. What’s even funnier is that it was a complete accident. All you can do is laugh.
Before this Reddit user could even react, they managed to capture a perfectly timed photo of their dog nearly biting the tail of their other pet. We’re all probably wondering what happened after this photo was taken, but the fact that this was even captured is good enough. We can assume that the aftermath wasn’t something to laugh about, and could even feel compassion for the mess this Reddit user most likely had to deal with.
We’ve all dove into water, and probably even tried to capture a photo of us jumping into the water. This Reddit user captured a perfectly timed photo of them jumping head first, into a lake. If you look closely, you can even see half of their face is still out of the water. It’s amazing what some people can capture at just the right moment.

Has your face ever matched your sweatshirt? Probably not. This Reddit user managed to capture a perfectly timed photo of their dried face mask and sweatshirt. If they had taken a photo anytime before or after, they probably wouldn’t have matched their sweatshirt flawlessly.
“Reached a milestone with my car mileage, timed perfectly with my trip meter.” via _B4Z
Another Reddit user shared their experience with their perfectly timed car mileage. Their trip meter and car mileage are from the numbers one through nine. This is a rare occurrence indeed. If they had waited any longer to take a photo, they would’ve missed the opportunity since the mileage would’ve gone up.
“People often say a picture is worth a thousand words, but I think these perfectly timed photos are worth ten thousand words each. Each one of them is pure luck.” – via sonoo
Another person was able to capture a photo of a perfectly timed water fountain and person. This photo makes it looks like the person was urinating, similar to the photo from above. They were in the perfect spot, at the perfect time.
We all love taking selfies, but how many times is your selfie perfectly timed with a snowball and street lamps? This Reddit user managed to take a selfie at the exact moment the snowball was thrown at their face. This is definitely a picture for the archives, that’s for sure!
“Snapped a selfie at the exact moment I get nailed by a snowball from other son (not pictured), and street lamp lines up perfectly to look like setting sun.” – via Fun_Avocado1981
“A perfectly timed photo of my dog.” – via coco_94742
This Reddit user didn’t hesitate when capturing this photo of a dog licking themselves. This perfectly timed photo shows the dog’s tongue across its entire face, nearly licking itself in the eye. They must have been quick to snap the photo.
Another inanimate object captured in its human form. This Reddit user managed to capture these cables in the shape of a man’s head. Maybe this cable is friends with the crumpled shadow faces from the Reddit user above. You never know.
“The shadows cast by these cables form a man’s head.” – via ssbu9876
This Reddit user found their furniture soul mate. If you look at this photo fast enough, you wouldn’t even see them sitting there. Wearing clothes that match furniture isn’t something that happens that often, so when it does happen and its captured on a photo, it’s definitely a perfectly timed picture.

We’ve all looked for an object that was directly in front of our eyes the entire time. This picture is the epitome of blending in. This perfectly timed photo captures an experience we’ve all been through time and time again, and probably made us feel a bit better when we reminisce about the times we’ve missed something directly in front of our eyes.

We’ve seen a water jug on fire, and now we’re seeing a water jug that’s getting married. It looks like the water jug has a veil on it and is, in fact, about to get married to the water jug wearing a tuxedo. This isn’t something you see very often. We’re lucky this Reddit user had their phone with them, to provide us this very amusing entertainment.

Let’s hope this Reddit user doesn’t live in Australia, because finding a snake in your house is common there. Even so, finding a belt on your floor in the shape of a snake is pretty terrifying, especially if you weren’t expecting it. This perfectly timed photo captured a scary occurrence we’ve all experienced from time to time. Hopefully, next time, it isn’t an actual snake, and they mistake it for a belt.
“My parents cat has a lowercase “j” on his back (or an “i” if I timed the picture right).” – via Kootsiak
This perfectly timed picture shows the letter “j” on the back of this cat! Let’s hope this Reddit user managed to capture another photo with its tail in the shape of an “i”. Maybe they decided to call their cat the Alphabet cat.
